A Descendant of the Mammoth. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914

A Descendant of the Mammoth. (By GA-IiKETT P. SERVISS.), Suppose that some traveller in a remote land should come upon a living animal bearing unmistakable indications of being a lineal de scendant of the famous "diplodo rus." There would be a great stir in tlie scientific world over such an apparition from the abyss of time, and a corresponding arousal of po pular interest in the wonders and mysteries of natural history. Hardly less interesting is the young Sumptruu elephant in the London "Zoo" which lias developed tlie long, coarse, red hair of the extinct mammoth. It has a mop hanging over its fore-head that would sufiice for college sophomores ; it wears trail ing whiskers on its chin,', and sports mammoth "mutton-shops" in front of its ears. Its whole body is more or less hairy, and it . pro claims i'n many ways that it be longed to a dilferent species from the ordinary Indian elephant, and approaches nearer than any other existing animal to those llrobdiug nagian beasts which,...

Rough on the Policeman. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914

Rough on the Police man. A police prosecution under the Liquor Act lias recently created a large amount of interest in the North. John Leahy, licensee of the Hotel Delta, was charged before Mr. A. Dean, P.M., of Townsville, with sup plying liquor to a man alleged to ho under the influence of liquor. No less than '2 1 witnesses were produced for the defence, hut the evidence of nine was taken, that being deemed quite sufficient to disprove, the charge. The P.M. delivered a lengthy judg ment in which he stated that the police had no business in interfering with the man, and that he was~cer tainlv not drunk and incapable. Ho concluded : " 1 litid that Weeks was not in a state of intoxication at the time he was supplied with the liquor in question ; that the constable (MeMamts) acted in a most unreas onable manner in sei/.ing the man by the neck, and pulling him out of the bar without more careful observation of his condition. I dismiss the com plaint with costs, and I adjudge the compl...

Inspiration and Perspiration. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914

Inspiration and Perspir ation. The difference between joyful living and drudgery does not. consist' so much in the task to lie done as it cloes in the , condition of mind, under which the labour is perform ed. Some people go'through life as slaves because they have no big .conception.., of the dignity and the mertning"' of their ..work. Others toil.' as. hard, but they do it. .with joy and gladness because -in the doing of the task they find the' expression of their inmost- purposes. To obtain the right explosion in. a gasoline engine there must be the correct ndmixture of gasoline • and . air. * So, to obtain the best kind of citizenship, there must be a right balance between inspiration and perspiration—because ideals to be reached and effort to reach : them. .Farmers are not excepted from this rule. There are as many dif ferent kinds of farmers as there are kinds of farms. Some farmers are infinitely bigger than their es tates ; some are miserably smaller. Some men farm for thems...

The Tenterfield Courier And District Advocate [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914

The Tenterfield Courier! And District Advocate There is nothing moro striking or more humiliating in our public life to day than the absence of ordinary political intelligence jn Labor politi cians. If there were not abundauco of public-proof of this fact to substan tiate the charge the person who would make it would run the risk of boycott or some personal violence. It is equally true in Federal as well as State politics. In the Federal labor Party it may be admitted that : then are two men of more than average ability. They are Mr. Hughes and Mr. Brennan. Both are barristers although Mr. Hughes when at the bar must ever take a junior's brief. In the N.S.W. State Labor Party and they number DO—there is not one man of superior ability. Many people think that Mr. Holman is an able man; but ho is not. It is true that he was admitted by literary examina tion to the bar of N.S.W. But ho lias remained at that over since. The same may be said of Mr. David Hall. Heither of them understands...

Fighting the Blowflies. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914

Fighting the Blowflies. The blow-fly peat In sheep con tinues to givo trouble in Australia. The logs every year has been set down at on enormous sum, but there is the prospect in addition that it is increasing each year in virulence. How can its numbers be checked ? The only way to face n danger of this sort is to make a campaign of attack complete, and that cannot be accomplished with out compulsory legislation. When this is talked about there is a per centage of the producers who asso ciate the step with tyranny and in terference with the liberty- of the subject. The fact is that all legis lation is really aimed at the man who will not do his duty to him self and his country. it is found that in New South Wales there is a sum of £1000 in the hands of a hoard originally appointed to assist the stockowners, and this money will now be devoted to research work. This will be a help, of course, but' all the time that the scientist is on the job, the fly is in creasing, When some of the ...

/ STOMACH WORMS. Stomach "Worms arc the most in vidious kind of nil. Thoy inhabit tho stomach and inflict havoc upon thoir victim. They deprive tho victim of half tho nutriment he consumes, and when tho stomach is empty gnaw tho sides causing such terrible sensation? as to often cause faintnoss.

Peculiar Forms of Taking an Oath. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914

Peculiar Forms of Taking an Oath. One of the most peculiar forms of taking the oath is that practised by tlie Xagas in Assam. Two men take hold of a dog by the head and feet, when with a single blow it is cut in twain with a chopper, this being, emblematic of the fate in store for the false swearer. Similarly chopping off a cock's head is said to be the most solemn w'ay of getting a Chinaman ■ to swear truly. judging, however, | from witnesses in the police-courts, there appear to'be several ways of taking an oath in China. One is by breaking a saucer; while an other is blowing out a lighted candle, his' soul being blown away like the light if he failed to speak the truth. Many of the jungle tribes of India swear upon a tiger's skin, as they believe that then a false witness is sure to become food for tigers. Some Hindus think it better to be sworn while standing on a lizard's skin, and invite the scaliness of that reptile to come upon them if they forswear themselves ; others take ...

EGG PRESERVATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914

EGG PRESERVATIVES. One of the best preservatives is the water-glass solution made of eight parts of water (previously boiled) to one part of water glass. Eggs placed in this solution Will keep indefinitely. Take an ordi nary five-gallon crock or wooden pail, put in the eggs, and pour on enough of the cool solution to cover all the eggs, Melt some parafiin and pour it on top, thus forming a thin .covering or blan ket which excludes all air, Another good preservative can be made bv taking 21b. of fresh lime, lib. of'salt, and 4 gallons'of water. After the lime is well slaked stir the solution and let it settle. After it has settled stir again and let it settle once more. Then pour oil the clear liquid and use it as a pre servative. Place the eggs in . a crock as in the water glass solu tion, and also use the purullin. Eggs preserved in either of the two solutions are almost as good as new-laid eggs, but of course they should not bo sold as such. In some instances those in the bot tom ...

Vegetables and Sunlight. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914

Vegetables and Sunlight. The interesting theory that when we eat vegetables we are consum ing sunlight was propounded by l-'ro- i feasor J. H. Priestly, of Leeds University, at a meeting of the! North of England Agricultural So ciety in Leeds. Every meal time, j said the professor, saw us deriving | energy from the sun with the aid of the green leaf, either directly as vegetarians or , indirectly through ! the medium of n vegetable animal. Wo drew upon stores of imprisoned sunlight. It could readily be seen, he continued, that the flat green leaf was an eft'ective trap for the sunlight. By means "f its pigments it absorbed and utilised the red and blue rays, the former of Which were of great utility to the plant itself. 1 This opened up an interesting possi- , bility. lluring the darker months ' of the year could not something bo done by means of artificial light to encourage growth, especially of in door plants Recently, proceeded Professor Priestly, Miss Dudgeon, at Dumfries, hail...

THE FARM. MILK MADE BY MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 16 April 1914

THE FAR MILK MADE BY MACHINERY. The familiar sign "Milk from our own dairies" may soon he sup planted in London . by the an nouncement "Milk from our own factories." This striking development of man's struggle to improve on Nature is the result of the discoveries of Dr. Saucr and Dr. Goosscll, two Ger man scientists, who claim to be able to make by machinery milk that is superior to that .supplied by the cow. A demonstration of tiiis synthetic milk was given at Dane's Inn lioa.se, London, in October, in the presence of medical men and Dress repre sentatives, Apart from a sort of clinging taste after drinking it, the synthetic draught passed the palate test. It went a little bettfir with coffee. The inventors of synthetic mjlk have been experimenting in Ger many for three years, and they claim they have how produced a perfect substitute for the natural article, Analysis in Germany have reported favourably on the new product.. It is claimed that the new milk is : Free from bacilli ; M...
